Update: Art Leveled Up in Master Suite

Back in October, inspiration surged and I finally found the design scheme for my master suite. The silver walls of my bedroom inspired an unconventional theme, yet many of my friends weren’t surprised about my decision to make it wrestling themed! Previously, I talked about finding an aesthetic which would hopefully keep my Final Boss Stage from looking like a 14-year-old boy’s bedroom. I’ve sang my Rob Schamberger praises before, and I am getting ready to warm up the ole pipes again because just in time for the holidays, Mr. Schamberger announced a fantastic print sale1!

Nerdy Subscription Boxes

Subscription boxes are currently all the rage, and you can find an overwhelming number of options, interests and fandoms available. I have the hardest time committing to subscription boxes because not only do I get overwhelmed by the choices available, but I also due to my inability to relinquish purchasing power to others. Here and there, I have felt the twinges of non-buyer’s remorse when certain items have cropped up, but by and large avoiding the sub box rabbit hole has been a blessing. That being said, I’ve managed to find three that I would gladly dive into, given the opportunity.

YouTube Fantasy Dinner Party

It’s been quite sometime since I’ve given thought to who I would invite to dinner. Ever since the summer, the second half of the year blurred into December. Where did 2016 go?! With the one year anniversary of my establishment of The Lil House of the Nerdy, I thought it was high time to think about who I would ask Santa to invite to my house for a girls’ night in1!

Decorating the Boss Level Master Suite

I received a surprisingly positive response to my big reveal about my design scheme for my master bedroom: The Boss Level. What surprised me was that no one tried talking me out of doing a classy, wrestling-themed bedroom. I showcased the art of Rob Schamberger, which demonstrated that wrestling can be artistic, and it can be displayed without making a room look like it belongs to a seventh grader. Questions started rolling in about providing more concrete designs with the items I do have, so today I’ll focus on how I am starting to stage my room.

Wrestling with Interior Design Inspiration

December 11, will mark the one year anniversary of my biggest adult move to date: purchasing my first house. So much has happened in the last year, especially when it comes to making my first house truly feel like my first home. Some rooms organically came together instantly, but unfortunately others have maintained stark walls. Of all the rooms in my house, I have spent the greater part of a year unable to decide what to do about the Boss Level of the Little House of the Nerdy: The Master Suite. I’ve wrestled with Pinterest in a no-holds barred, fight forever matchup since I moved in last year. I grappled with more design schemes than I cared to count, and then it hit me… like a steel chair to the back of the head…
